That's great!

Thanks very much for your efforts to get the Centura running again for work requiring a critically pure ambient.  A number of students will be happy to complete depositions before the SNF shutdown, especially those needed just a few high-quality depositions to complete the experimental work for a thesis.

Have an enjoyable Thanksgiving celebration.

We had a very good day!

We will installed the upper quartz and dome, confirmed correct wafer 
placement in process chamber and pumped down system.

System is now baking out.  I will come in on Friday to etch the chamber, 
get temperature readings and run silicon depositions.

We will update on you all on Friday.
